As of 12/30 this group of meat pigs are sold out! Watch our page to see if more come available soon!

A few meat pigs available!

As a general rule of thumb this time of year we are selling 4-H and FFA project pigs to our show customers. We carefully breed and sell pigs that have the potential to win, as we select top boars, and feed expensive starter and show rations, because we want the kids pigs to get off to a great start so they have the best chance at success in the ring.

We do however have a few that won’t cut the mustard in the show ring and we offering them for sale now as feeder pigs that have been fed the high dollar feed rations. Quite frankly they go fast, and after January 1st, California’s Proposition 12 goes into effect. What does this mean to you, you ask? Quite simply pork prices in California will rise because pork producers in other states will no longer be able to comply with California’s new regulations. Meat producers have 49 other states to sell there product to, so to heck with trying to comply to the idiocy that is California.

We currently have six available, so if you want to raise your own pork get them now! Avoid the the future high cost of pork in California and raise your own!

Don’t worry if you missed out last weekend! Some of the pigs were picked out and taken to their new homes to become amazing show pigs for those young showman, but we still have some amazing pigs left in this set of pigs. Don’t delay in calling Tara to come pick yours out this weekend!

Show Pig Barn Opening This Saturday 12/4!

Two of the best litters we’ve produced in a long time here at J.V. Ranch. Perfect for May Fairs! There are also several great opportunities for Registered Breeding Gilts and a Boar out of these litters.

Because of the quality of the babies in previous litters, we doubled down on the Sire. Both are sired by “Timesaver” out of our “Loos Eddeth” sow (fifi), as well as our “JV Spotted Clover” offspring (beaver). Both sows trace back to Team Loos boars that were phenomenal sires in the Loos herd.

Do you want meat in your market class?!

This is by far one of the most powerful groups of showpigs we’ve had in a while! These guys are perfect for the early season shows as well as jackpots. Ideal for April and May fairs this mighty meaty bunch was farrowed October 9th, and will be ready for their showmen in 3-4 more weeks. Sired by “Timesaver” standing at Southern Gold, out of two of our favorite and most productive sows!

There are some pretty powerful gilts in this group that could make some excellent breeding gilts. Look for more information in a few weeks!

The beginning to an End of an Era....

Today Miss Tara and I took our kids market hogs to weigh in for the last time as “show parents”. Dakota and Grace are showing their “FFA year out”, and after that, we have no more of our offspring eligible (not that you needed to be our offspring, to be one of “Our Kids”).

The places we’ve gone, the things we’ve seen and done, and the friends we’ve met have made it quite a ride of memories for Tara and I, and we wouldn’t have missed a minute of it! I thought I’d share some of the memories of some things we’ve done, and some of the many young people that have made it so special along the way!

We’ll still be here for you all should you need us in your travels to adult life. For those of you that aren’t our offspring, don’t be strangers and always remember that we might not have been your parents, but your our kids!

This is our little buddy Colten Anderson...
He is young Spot Breeder and 4-H Member From Escalon, CA. Tara is giving him instructions on processing day old piglets, as Colten is expecting his first litter soon. This is why we keep doing what we do. Young people learning how to be self sufficient and producing food for the nation. Someone’s got to replace us old folks and carry on to feeding the world!

Looking for a unique gift idea for the holidays?
We have meat pigs available!

Christmas is coming and what a better gift idea than pig or two! A pig could provide your loved one with a way to save money and put food on their families table! If you have children, you could give them an opportunity to learn about the responsibility of caring for an animal, and teach them self sufficiency. In today’s world, I believe we need to teach our children stewardship of the land and animal husbandry!

Why buy your family gifts that they can play with and break in five minutes? Give them something they can really enjoy all year... Bacon, Ham, Chops, Sausage, and Roasts! Get them off the couch, outside doing something productive!

For more info... give us a call!
